On May 5, 2003, the full Committee voted to adopt an internal organization for subcommittees on each of the technical areas in Right of Way, Utilities and Outdoor Advertising Control. Chairs for the Right of Way & Utilities Technical Subcommittees have been appointed by the AASHTO Right of Way, Utilities, and Outdoor Advertising Control Committee (CRUO) Steering Committee Chairman.
The Right of Way (R/W) Vice-Chair, Utilities Vice-Chair, and Outdoor Advertising Control Vice-Chair serve as the single point of contact and provide coordination for their respective technical subcommittees:
R/W Technical Subcommittee Contact – Jeff Hoge, Tennessee
Utilities Technical Subcommittee Contact – Jennifer McCleve, Kentucky
Outdoor Advertising Subcommittee Council Contact – Barbara Wessinger, South Carolina
The Technical Subcommittees will assist the full CRUO Committee by focusing the attention and expertise of the members of the Subcommittees on specific business areas of responsibility in Right of Way, Utilities, and Outdoor Advertising Control; identifying technical developments, trends, initiatives, innovations and potential problems; and providing an annual report on current issues in each particular area of responsibility.
